Bourbon vs. Scotch
August 8, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
This or That?
Bourbon or single malt? Why not three of each? Kilkerran single malt is the excellent whisky made at Glengyle Distillery (1872-1925; resurrected by Hedley Wright, the great-great nephew of William Mitchell, the original owner-operator). Deanston 18-yr is an official bottling bought at the distillery in 2019. Macleod’s is the single malt range bottled by Ian Macleod Distillers; let’s try its Islay edition. Eagle Rare is a lovely 10-yr bourbon from Buffalo Trace.
Next, the last bottle of the 12-year edition of Elijah Craig bourbon. Its current bottling is a no-age-statement version. High West Yippee-Ki-Yay is a blend of straight ryes. It’s a multi-award winner.
Kender Roman, R&F Continental Dominican Cigar, recommended his Golden Edition cigar. You will receive 3 of them! We’re quite confident that the food, cigar and whisky lineup will afford the partakers an evening to fondly remember. The only thing that we might lack is the pleasure of your good company. So, do join us and bring a friend, because “good whisky is made great when shared among friends”.
